What is Best Sealer for Pool Patio Concrete or Pavers that is not slippery?

If you are a homeowner that is lucky enough to have a pool you know how enjoyable they can be. Although there is some maintenance involved, pools can create a lot of fun family times. When it comes to the hard surfaces around your pool, they can be just as important to maintain as the pool itself.

There are a wide variety of materials used for pool patios or decks. Concrete or pavers are a common type of pool patio surface. To maintain a concrete or paver patio around the pool, it is common to clean and seal it on a regular basis. Every couple of years is typically the average for cleaning and resealing. Doing so will protect the area from harsh pool chemicals, sun fading, acid rain, erosion, and freeze/thaw damage.

Finding the best sealer for pool patio concrete or pavers will ensure the area lasts a long time. Choose a sealer that is non-gloss to reduce the chance of creating a slippery surface. Being around a pool will obviously mean that wet feet will be walking and running across the surface. Making it too slippery with multiple applications of a glossy sealer is the last thing you want to do.

However, if you want to give the pool patio a wet look without the gloss, there are sealers that fall into that category. Sealers like SuperSeal M or Surebond SB-6000 are two great choices. These sealers penetrate the surface to create a barrier of protection without the glossy finish. Some Satin and Semi-Gloss sealers will work as well as long as they do not seal the surface 100%. These would be styrene acrylic based sealers such as SuperSeal25.

There are also pool patio sealers that will not alter the appearance of the concrete or pavers at all but still give the surface adequate weather protection. It really comes down to personal preference, but creating a non-slippery surface that is water repellent is the goal. Sealing your pool patio concrete or pavers with the best sealer possible is good insurance to protect your investment. It will also ensure you maintain your outdoor living space so it is there to enjoy for many years.

    how warm does it have to be outside to seal concrete. How long after power washing can the sealer be applied?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Kathy, depends on the brand you choose. Typically at least 50 degrees and dry for 24 hours or longer.

    Hi there. We have a brick paved driveway and it is very slippery when wet. What do you recommend?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Ann, you could try adding some grip into your sealer that will give traction. Shark Grip or Super Grip.

    Hi there, what type of sealer should I use living in Central Florida for brick pavers on the pool deck and also the driveway. I recently put in sand to stabilize pavers as part of routine maintenance. What do you recommend and how do I apply it?
    Thank you in advance, Suzy Q

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Use the SuperSeal30 for this. Apply with a roller. Make sure that you removed all the poly sand dust from the surface to avoid the white \”poly haze\” issue.

  8. Jen says:

    We have old brick pavers around are pool that are deteriorating. We can't replace them now but need to do our best to preserve them. Since they will be wet a lot we need to make sure they are not slippery, also would like to use them on the bricks that edge the pool. What do you recommend and what is the best way to apply it.

  9. Steve says:

    We have a combination of travertine coping and cement pavers. Last sealed 2 years ago but it is pretty slippery. Will I need to strip the current sealer before applying a new one? What would you recommend for the new one that will minimize slip? Live in central florida.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You may need to add a grip into the sealer for traction. Look at the Super Grip and SuperSeal Matte.

  10. John says:

    I used the wrong sealer on my pavers and it's too slippery When wet. What can I use to remove it and what do you recommend for a wet look sealer that's not slippery when wet. I prefer a water based sealer.

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Strip with the Concrete Paver Sealer Stripper made by Clemons Concrete and pressure washing. Wash off residue when down with their Cleaner and Degreaser. Seal with Surebond SB-6000 wet look sealer.

    I would like to have the 'wet/shiney' look on my pavers by the pool area without being slick. can you recommend a product?

  22. Tricia says:

    They just put a sealer around my pool and we can't even walk on it with out falling is there anything I can use to not make it So slippery

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You could add another coat with Shark Grip added. Might want to wait 1-2 weeks for full cure to see if it goes away.

  23. Richard L says:

    could I use LePage PL 600 Landscape Block Adhesive as a sealant between joints on my stamped concrete paved pool deck?

  24. Jim Beattie says:

    Is the Masonry Saver (Delfy) Water Repellent Sealer good to use on a stamped concrete pool deck that
    has a salt water pool? It looks from your reviews like its the best product you reviewed, and its non-glossy so I assume not slippery. Thanks for the advice!

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      It is not for Stamped concrete. You would want the Masonry Saver Decorative Concrete Sealer.

  25. Kim says:

    We live in WI and purchased a home with an inground that is surrounded with exposed aggregate pool deck, it doesn't look like it has ever had a new coat of sealant on it. It is very rough and not pleasant to walk on, what can we use to seal it and hopefully make walking on it a little easier? Also is there a product/sealant that could slightly tint the color, it is an ugly gray.
    Thanks in advance.

  26. Maureen says:

    I live in Arizona and have concrete colored pavers around pool and patio. Patio colors still look good, but pavers around the sunny area look faded. Is there a product that I can use to get the color back (when it is wet, all the pavers match). Thanks so much for the help. And is there someone in the Scottsdale area you would recommend to apply product? The deck less than 2 years old.

  27. Kam says:

    I have a salt water pool patio area that's roughly 800 sqft. Large Permacon cassara pavers installed few days ago. Looking for suggestions on both gloss and matte finish sealers. Easy application preferably a pump sprayer. My main concern in the slippery surface it would create for our young children. I'd also like it to prevent stains from leafs. We have a large tree on the neighbour's property. Located in Toronto Canada. Cold winters here
